I know what the rainbow stripes are, but when you separate all the colours like that, it doesn't look like the UCI stripes. I guess it's just the way the stripes come to a point on top of the downtube. The yellow and green separated by black looks a ... more »

What's with the silly, over-clocked, Benny Hill Show looking footage? Makes downhill look ridiculous. C'mon!

Ha ha you're right. Just played the footage with the Benny Hill theme on. The sections from 2-4min is gold.

Do you provide a warranty or returns with all the bikes and cars you sell? Thought not.

When it comes to service based businesses, it's always possible to do it cheaper yourself...without the service part. There's always risk when buying second hand, whether it's a car or a bike. This is great for people who don't mind paying a little extra for convenience and peace of mind. It's a good idea, well executed.

They made a new Sunday. That's definitely not a criticism. Looks awesome.

Hate to be a pedant but...wage means how much you get paid by your employer. It doesn't include endorsements. I know you didn't say average, but you used the word 'decent'. I'd say most of the guys on the World Tour are decent.

Peter Sagans current salary is €6million or £5.2million.

It would be misleading to say a decent World Cup downhiller earns in excess of a $1million a year when actually you are talking about Aaron Gwin.

Some uncomfortable counter arguments:
*Firstly, the UCI only care about road&track because it accounts for >95% of its revenue.
Mtb is a pain in the ass for the UCI - relative to R&T, Mtb is the same effort for a tiny amount of reward.
You said yourself that the UCI made 15 million Swiss...more

Some good points there.

Are you sure about the World Tour Cyclist wage? 15million CHF is £11.5 million.
The current pro men's minimum salary is around £33k. That's quite a difference.

I just Googled and Chris Froome's salary is around £3million.

Dude, have you seen a pic of Shaun Palmer lately. He is 50 years old. Unless SC will be sponsored by 'Just for Men' there is no way that's him.
